Montana Lottery News

In conjunction with the April 3 launch of our new daily game, Big Sky Bonus, 10 Spot will end after the 7:30 p.m. draw on April 2, 2016. With two daily draws and $25,000 jackpot, 10 Spot provided six years of fun and enjoyment for Montanans. But to keep the Lottery’s product line fresh and innovative, we are ending 10 Spot to make way for Big Sky Bonus.

* The draw down for 10 Spot will begin after the 12:30 p.m. draw on March 20, 2016.
* The draw down will continue through 28 draws.
* As the maximum draws available for purchase reduces, the terminal will only let you select the allowable number of draws.
* The final draw for 10 Spot will be at 7:30 p.m. on April 2, 2016.

Thanks for the supporting the Montana Lottery!

The Montana Lottery is introducing four new Scratch games on January 6. Our first 2016 release includes Hot $1,000.00, White Hot Bingo, All Cash, No Taxes and a perennial favorite, Deluxe Super Hot 7's. The table provides pricing, top prizes and Bonus Play info, but if you want a more complete rundown on the prize structure for these games, please go to http://www.montanalottery.com/scratch for a complete game summary.

You might be asking yourself why the top prize for All Cash, No Taxes is such an odd number. This is because the player who wins will go home with $10,000 in their pocket, the rest goes to pay the winner's withholding tax. Not a bad selling point.

Look for increased sales in Hot Lotto with Sizzler this month. The Lottery will be running a small advertising campaign to promote Hot Lotto, so you should see more interest. Make sure your staff knows the basics - Hot Lotto jackpots start at $1 Million, the Sizzler option allows a 3X multiplier on any prize except the jackpot, and drawings are held Wednesday and Saturday at 8:59 PM. More importantly, tax withholdings are paid on the jackpot prize. So the cash value shown is what a player puts in their pocket if they win. But just the jackpot, not the other prizes, we need to make sure that's clear. The Lottery is working hard to get the word out on Hot Lotto with Sizzler, so make sure you're ready when players come through the door.

On a snowy day in Helena, the Montana Lottery initiated the Photon Rollout with the first Photon terminal installation at the Cenex Zip Trip in Helena. With a more intuitive program, touch screen and faster response, we are so excited to put the Lottery’s latest technology to work. We had the A-Team at the Zip Trip today, and soon your own A-Team will be at your store, getting the Photon into place and training you for a faster, more stream-lined Lottery experience.
